Wiper motor!!!

Well, that was fun. DSE, you don't get my $300, thank you very much.

Mat Klemp came over this morning with a goodie box, and 5 or 6 hours later there is a mid 80's Blazer / S10 wiper motor on my firewall!

It looks good, much smaller and cleaner than the original. Not quite sure if there is a speed difference between high and low, but it moves much faster than the original ever did, and it parks in the right place.

It did take some engineering, hopefully I got some good pics and I can manage to explain it properly so others can do it as well. The S10 powers the motor from the switch, backwards of the Camaro which provides a ground from the switch.

We actually went inside, removed the ground, and fed power to it there! We're running the motor backwards! But it doesn't care. We made 2 wiring changes inside the motor, and spliced it's connector onto the original wires, no changes under the dash, stock wiper switch and wiring still in place.

After I scroll thru the new posts for a while, I'll get some details and pictures up.

Mat, thanks a bunch, it was great to meetcha and work with ya!!

Re: Wiper motor!!!

Here's a pic of the almost finished product. I still need to tape the harness back up. Sometime soon, I'll get to covering the details on how.

No delay, and I'll have to rig a separate washer pump.

*** note that the purpose of this excercise was to use the original wiring and switch. There is no provision for delay here.
Also, for thos who want a delay, the delay version of this motor is larger, and will not clear a power brake booster.

Re: Wiper motor!!!

It was certainly a confusing challange to make the wiper work But was fun and rewarding to see it work and It was nice to meet you Jim. I was thinking that if you do not have both speeds, try swapping the wires at terminals 1 & 2. but that might mean low speed on the switch is hi wiper speed and hi speed on the switch is low wiper speed????

Looks good Jim I may have to look into that as I don't use the washer anyway. So does this mean your planning to go power on us? All this time you've said you'd never go power and now your crushing our spirits with talk like this...






J/K but seriously are you planning to go power or did you just want to clean up the firewall?

Re: Wiper motor!!!

No Harley, no power for me. I just mentioned it because so many do use power brakes, would hate to have someone hassle it out and have it not fit.

And I will try hard to get around to the rest of the instructions someday...

Let's see, here's a quickie... The motor shaft clocks in the exact same position as the camaro's when it parks. The "drive bracket thingy" that attaches to the motor is clocked differently tho, and the stud where the linkage attaches is larger.

We used my original piece, and attacked it with some files until it would go onto the larger shaft.

Re: Wiper motor!!!

I am looking for a delay solution using a 4th gen column and harness. I am not sure of this solution but I would prefer a plugin to the existing harness.
